    Hi,

    Looking for ideas here folks. I've got an issue with my Mac that I can't seem to resolve.

    All of a sudden today, the Mac won't charge. It claims to still be drawing power from 85W USB-C charger, but not sure what will happen when the battery dies.

    Tried resetting SMC but no joy. Please tell me I don't have to take this to the Genius Bar and that there's another step I can take.

    Good afternoon David,

    You can try to reset the PRAM (hold CMD+ALT+P+R on startup). Is that any better?

    No, does nothing.

    I let it run out of battery without AC power. Now it won't power on at all.

    It could be the charging block itself.

    You don't happen to know someone with another 2016 MBP by chance?
